Ok, well yes it has been a while since I have updated so heres my updates in picture form, starting back in October and moving into November. I'll try to be brief, and since I have so many pictures, I'm going to do our California trip on my next post. Ok then here goes.............................................
It all started long ago in the month of October when the Brisk weather began to move in, bringing with it color change all over the Great Smokey mountains, and then the leaves began to fall, and so began our season of "FALL". To me fall is always the beginning of the holiday season, although there are no holidays right away. I guess it's because that's the first of my seasonal decorations I pull out. Anyway, so what better way to celebrate fall than going to a farm with all kinds of fun things to do and see, like...........
Sliding down big plastic construction pipes cut in half. This is the country folks, we don't got no real slides round here. Annie was yelling at her uncle Matt to take her down. She was a little afraid of the scary looking slide.
Then we got to move on up to the petting area, where we could look at some real live sheep and goats, and chickens that bite. Of course the only thing they let us actually pet were the cute little guinea pigs and rabbits, which of course were still too scary for my little pumpkin. Even seeing her cousins ty-ty and Libby pet them wasn't enough to convince her they weren't going to chomp her fingers off. notice she kept her hands in her pockets far out of reach of the little monster, while Ty-ty dove right in to pet him.
This was my little guy at the farm. He was mad that he was too small to do.... well.......anything.
This was a fun trough filled with corn kernels. By the time we got out of here Annie was about 3lbs heavier, and I couldn't figure out why until I looked down inside her diaper and yep there it was. I know what you're thinking and no, she didn't eat it people, she was just stashing some away to play with later.
My little country girl chewing on some straw.
Family photo opp. The shadows kind of ruin the photo but hey, we don't get many family photos so I had to throw it in there.Me and my girl gutting the pumpkin. That goopy stuff didn't bother her one bit.
My parents crack me up, they started pulling out their tools to make carving easier. If you know my mom too, you would totally understand. She's like mrs. handywoman, she can fix many things and make many new things if you put a power tool in her hands. Look at those rockin biceps mom. Nice.
